"5U modular rig + Korg Electribe."

Erica Synths Syntrx - 25 minutes of madness


"The Erica Synths Syntrx is an homage to the EMS Synthi - a beautiful experimental vintage analog synthesizer. The Syntrx does a great job of capturing the vibe. Recorded directly from the synth with no post-processing."

As always see the dealers on the right for availability.

"100%" Series



1. 100% DX7
A track by Rob Parker featuring the Yamaha DX7 as the sole sound source. Processed with an old Lexicon MX300. This was the first "100%" song I did in 2011 and was released on a short EP I did in 2014 called ""iMinimalist."
2. 100% Minimoog Voyager
A track by Rob Parker featuring the Moog Voyager as the sole sound source. NOTE: If you're listening on a phone or anything with a mono/summed mono device. Somehow, certain sounds like the snare are out of phase between left and right channels. I no longer have the multi-track files of this song so I can't correct it. Put in some earbuds, headphones, or best of all, some decent speakers on a desktop to get the best experience. It's Moog after all; you wanna hear that girth.
3. 100% MS-20 Mini
A track by Rob Parker featuring the Korg MS-20 Mini as the sole sound source. I'm not sure what I was going for here. Is it dubstep? Anyway, nothing will ever top the MS-2o Mini song by Koishistyle - check that out!
4. 100% Gaia SH-01
A track by Rob Parker featuring the Roland Gaia SH-01. What an awful name for a synth, let alone a song. I really should have left it out, but this was on the first trip-hop record I did called "Fathomer," which is here on the channel. This was my first knobby synth along with a blue SH-101.
5. 100% M1
A track by Rob Parker featuring the Korg M1 as the only sound source. When I think of the M1, I think of early 90's house/dance music. Thusly, I made the most stereotypical 90's dance track possible...
6. 100% K1
I tried shooting for an 80's EBM feel for this one. The K1 can be a difficult synth to work with but the sound is certainly unique. Like it sounds good until you try to use it in a mix, but when it does work, it's great."

Additonal Selected Tracks From Synthesizers

Limited Edition Brown & Gold KORG microKORG

via this auction

10th anniversary limited edition released in 2013, which makes the original roughly 17 years old.

Mos-lab Moslab RSF kobol analog synthesizer

via this auction

"I used to own an original RSF kobol and this unit is spot on, probably the best bass Ive ever heard and fits into a mix better than a minimoog. I think they may be just as rare if not more so than the original kobols. The sweepable waveforms allow you to tweak the frequencies to a perfect spot when the cutoff is down so you can fit the notes right into a frequency pocket. I would say it sounds something like a minimoog and a pro one had a baby. Sync sounds great as well. This unit is in its own powered stand alone boat but but can also be racked as a giant 5u module, in perfect cosmetic and working order."

Anyma Phi - Physical Modeling Synthesizer by Aodyo

Details via the Kickstarter campaign:

"An affordable hybrid monophonic synthesizer that allows you to create new sound universes inspired from the real world, where objects collide, vibrate, and resonate

Anyma Phi blends the classic ingredients of electronic music with physical modeling technology, allowing it to simulate acoustic sound sources, such as strings or reeds, as well as resonating structures, like wood, glass, or metal. Anyma Phi is compact enough to stand on your keyboard, or anywhere on your desk, and is compatible with any MIDI controller, such as keyboards, sequencers, or even wind controllers, including our own Sylphyo! [see posts here]

Whether you play live or record in the studio, design sounds or play presets, Anyma Phi will become an indispensable tool. It can even be used as a stand-alone effects processor, or as part of a guitar effects pedal setup.

The heart of the Anyma Phi is the matrix, which provides a quick and easy way to explore your sounds by following a physical metaphor, with four macros for each of the five stages of sound generation.

With its matrix, Anyma Phi offers a straightforward way to tweak, explore, and create sound universes. It also provides easy ways to make your sound react to your MIDI controllers with mapping shortcuts. But don't be fooled by the simplicity!

If you want to dive deeper, you can take control of the powerful semi-modular synth engine beyond the matrix, with oscillators covering a wide range of synthesis techniques, effects, and modulators.

By connecting those together, you can create any kind of sound, and control it any way you want.

SOUNDMIT 2020 - The Alan R. Pearlman Foundation - Interview with Dina Pearlman


"In this interview conducted by Johann Merrich we will meet Dina Pearlman, daughter of Alan R. Pearlman (that's right! ARP Synthesizers) who will tell us how, two years after the death of her father, she decided to establish the Alan R. Pearlman Foundation to continue to keep the memory and the teachings of her father. Between residency projects for artists and preservation of archives, an interesting chat to find out more. We may even find out how to support the foundation!"

Roland JD-800 Synthesizer

via this auction

"The JD-800 is Roland's answer to half a decade of hard to program synthesizers. Covered in sliders that act as dedicated editors just like a classic analog synth, the JD-800 is an extremely programmable and hands on digital synthesizer. It is also an interesting and great sounding digital synth with incredible flexibility and control. Internal ROM based wave forms are combined to build your sounds. The sounds are based on Roland's D-50, but updated for the nineties with multi mode filters - uncommon but welcome at the time.

The JD-800 came in a tough metal case capped off on the sides with large plastic covers.Programming may be a little too flexible for some users, but once you know what you're doing with it, almost any sound you can dream up can be dialed in and stored."

"Small Jam with Korg MonoPoly"

2 x Circuit Bent Stylophones synced with a modular synthesizer system

Tasos Stamou

"Two stylophones linked to a modular synth system, receiving CV signals for pitch, filter."

This instrument is the result of years of research while intensively hacking the Stylophone into extreme levels of manipulation, towards the production of an analogue synthesizer.

The evolution of this research has concluded into this tiny beast which can be used in many different ways. Besides a very powerful noisy and melodic standalone synth keyboard and drone generator, the new generation is fully compatible to the modular synthesizers’ standards of controls.

The Stamouphone in capable of interacting with a eurorack modular synthesizer system as an extra synth voice, via accurate CV, VCF and gate voltage inputs.

Furthermore, It is equipped with its own very special 2-way filter.

Here is a list of all the hacks:
1. Extreme pitch control (really low range towards rhythmic patterns)
2. 2 x sustain switches, works as a synth voice
3. CV input
4. CV gain knob
5. Gate input
6. 2 way “Stamou” filter, with frequency and resolution knobs
7. 3 x contact point pins, sensible to the filter
8. VCF input
9. Amplified Output (modular synth volume level)

Suzuki Waraku - the forgotten Japanese synth harp


Suzuki Waraku on eBay | on Reverb

"In which I demo the beautiful Suzuki Waraku, a rather unknown instrument from 1989 made for the classical Japanese market. Though played with a plectrum and strings, it uses samples to imitate the sound of a Taishōgoto and other traditional Japanese instruments. Originally made for practice, it has both a unique sound is a beautiful MIDI controller you can play in tandem with modern synths."
